It’s just been the year of long-time Dallas fixtures retiring. Tony Romo left for the broadcast booth, and longtime defender DeMarcus Ware announced his retirement after 12 seasons in the NFL in March. His past three seasons were spent with the Denver Broncos, but today the Cowboys announced that Ware will officially retire as a Cowboy.
We are proud to announce that @DeMarcusWare will officially retire today as a Dallas Cowboy.

Ware had a Hall of Fame style career, and still holds Cowboys records for all-time sacks (117) and all-time forced fumbles (32). His best individual season came in 2008, where he recorded 20.0 sacks and forced six fumbles.
Also, there’s a chance that DeMarcus Ware might not be completely done with football. According to reports, if Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett allow him, he would definitely come back to Dallas and help coach.
